A soft, cotton book weight for holding your Bible or inspirational book open to important quotes!

A book weight that can be thrown in a drawer or book bag and washed when grungy!

* For librarians!  For teachers!  For archivists & historians!

I store mine close at hand tossed in the dish towel drawer.  Who wants a rigid cookbook stand taking up
precious counter or desk space?

Your book weight cover will be
* made from a fabric you choose from among my extensive stash -

* made of 100% quilt-store quality cotton
* lined with muslin
* interfaced for strength
* without raw edges, inside or out, to prevent fraying
* pre-shrunk to assure post-washing quality

The 1 pound weight is
* washable, flexible, plastic coated steel
* easily removed for washing
* plenty to keep all but the stubbornest of books open

Should you spill something on your Heidi's Washable Book Weight, simply remove the weight and toss the
cover in with your laundry.  Rinse the weight in the sink and allow to dry.  Replacing the weight is easier than
putting a pillow in a slip.  Full instructions are provided.

If you wish larger or smaller book weights, matching ones, or have another special request, just send me a
message and I bet we can work something out that will meet your needs.  And, of course, I can gift wrap one
and send it anywhere you request!  Combined shipping is available.
